Your choice of pressures would depend on whether you want an electric or gas powered washer.

An electric one will be limited to the pressure that can be sustained by a 120 volt circuit.
I would get the highest pressure that will work on a 15 amp plug if that's the way you want to go.

You will have more choice if you go with a gas unit.

1500 psi at 2 gal/min flow would do a good job for you.

The water flow rate is just as important, if not more so than pressure.
